There's nothing more satisfying in the world of beauty than a flawless new set of nails. The gel polishes and acrylic extenders have come into our eyes for a period of time but now it is time to focus on the super shine dip powder.
Anyone who enjoys scrolling through popular beauty posts on Instagram or is fascinated by some interesting videos on Tik Tok and YouTube has likely witnessed the powder dipping process at some point in their life. But there will be a question as to what makes dipping powder such a worthy choice of nail polish.
Also commonly referred to as SNS nails, the dip powder manicure technique involves dipping the nail into a tinted powder (or brushing the dip powder onto the nail) and then applying a clear sealer on top. The result is a longer-lasting manicure that can stay chip-free for up to a month. Dip powder nails are a mixture of gel nail polish and acrylic extensions. Dip powder nails are more flexible and durable.
How tp make dip powder nails?
Whether you get your nails done in a salon or at home on your own, this process requires carefulness. Each salon is slightly different in this technique, but the following steps are suitable for most nail salons (and home dipping kits).
Prep the nail: clean the nail to remove any stains and oil on the nail; push back the cuticles to remove any dead tissue on the nail.
Apply the bond: bond dehydrates the nail and removes any oils that cause lifting.
Apply the base: apply the base to the nail and dip the nail into the powder. Anytime that you apply the base you have to make sure that you are applying thin even layer. Depending on the desired opacity and intensity of the color, it may be necessary to repeat this step for 2 to times.
After activating the powder, wait for 2 to 5 minutes, and then file, shape and buff and finally, apply the topcoat.
When you make your nails done in the salon, the nail technician should not dip your nails into the powder container. Dipping the nail into the powder container was adopted when the technique newly came into people's eyes but was abandoned at present because dipping different clients' nail into the same container is unsanitary.
The technician should brush the powder on your nails, or pour some powder into Dixie cups for disposable use.
How long can the dip powder nail last?
Di powder nails can last two weeks to a month. The lasting time depends on the hardness of your nails. If you make nails on your own, it means less money as they don't require much maintenance.
